Jimmy Fallon Gets The Bayside High Gang Back Together

Ok, Seriously?! Did none of the cast of Saved By The Bell age? Like at all? I don’t get it. I feel like i’ve aged more in the time it took me to write this post, than they have in 20 years! I got a raw deal somewhere along the line. If Mario Lopez can just do those ballet moves just because he can and has never gotten formal training then that’s just unfair. You can’t be that good looking and be awesome at everything. You’re making the rest of us look like chumps!

It can’t be denied that we live in the golden age of late night television with Jimmy Fallon leading the way.

Jimmy Fallons’ Throwback Thursday – “Full House Reunion”

This skit is from one of Jimmy Fallon’s final “Late Night” shows, where the guys from Full House (Saget, Stamos, Joey) show up and help him make his decision to take over The Tonight Show. Two takeaways: John Stamos ages like a fine wine and Jimmy Fallon’s make believe bedroom is what nightmares are made of.

‘Scrubs’ Gets a Reunion on ‘Cougar Town’

I don’t really watch “Cougar Town’, but if more episodes were like this I would DVR that shizz every week! Can’t get enough of Scrubs.

PS- Finally finished Scrubs about a week ago (Still weeping after the end of season 8).

PSS- I realize this episode isn’t new. I just happened to stumble upon it.

Going Back to Your High School Reunion as a Famous Actor Has to Be the Best Feeling Ever

“Lots of people dread going to their 20-year high school reunion. But not Bradley Cooper!

The Hangover star returned to his alma mater, Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, Pa., on Nov. 8 to catch up with friends from the class of 1993 and visit his favorite teachers.

“He has come back to GA a couple of times to talk to students,” a school official tells PEOPLE. “He loves seeing his old teachers and enjoys reminiscing with them. When he says he’s going to do something for the school, he does it. He’s a big supporter and proud to be a part of this school. So it was no surprise that he came to the reunion.”

While his girlfriend, British model Suki Waterhouse was in L.A., Cooper, 38, had a blast reliving the past with his best pal and fellow ’93 classmate Brian Klugman, who stars on the FOX series Bones.”

I can’t imagine a better feeling than this. Even if you were the man in high school, going back to your 20 year reunion as a world famous actor with your model girlfriend is an all time trump card. At most reunions you’re impressed by classmates who became doctors or lawyers. Not at BCoops. “Oh your a doctor now? That’s cool, I might have to dip out early though, gotta catch a plane to Hawaii to film a movie with Jennifer Lawrence.” If I were him I’d go to every high school reunion I could get my hands on. Even if he didn’t go to that high school. Just show up with Suki and shoot the shit with all the normies of the world. I for one would be ecstatic to hang out with Bradley Cooper at my high school reunion. Naturally we’d become best friends and I’d star in his new movie about two best friends who meet at a high school reunion. During the premiere he introduces me to Jennifer Lawrence and we embark on a lifelong romance. Now I can’t wait for my reunion.

Why Facebook Killed The High School Reunion

facebook_reunion

Yesterday I happened to turn on HBO and what was on? American Reunion.  I haven’t seen the latest installment in the “American” movie saga so I sat, and watched it.  Besides “when will they stop making these movies”, one question jumped out at me: has the traditional high school reunion grown obsolete? Think about it, in this day & age you experience a high school reunion every time you log into Facebook or any other social media site.  You know exactly what all of your friends from high school do for work, what they look like, how many kids they have, how many divorces they have had, and what they had for breakfast.  Is a scheduled party really necessary? Here is how I see my HS reunion going: I stand with the guys I spend 99.9% of my week with, we crack jokes at each others expenses, and we fake wrestle.  We do this in my basement every week, it’s nothing new.  But, maybe someone from our class we haven’t “seen”  in a while comes up to us. Let me explain how this goes:

Me: oh hey, good to see you.
Person X: You too, we should definitely get together soon, it’s been too long.
Me: Oh yea that would be great, we definitely should!

Neither party has any interest in actually seeing the other person until the next reunion or until they run into each other in the grocery store and awkwardly walk by each other with their heads hung low. Listen, I’m not trying to be cynical here, just realistic.  All the people from high school that I want to see I can see, and I do.  Everyone has there own set of friends for a reason, you get along with those people (or in my case, we can coexist without murdering each other. It’s a thin line, but we ride it pretty well…most of the time). Why force friendships? To be friendly? Ok, being friendly is a good excuse. You don’t want to be a grumpy asshole, but don’t waste anyones time by going further than “hi and bye”.

Yea reunions are nice in theory, and I will be attending mine eventually, but they have definitely lost their luster.
